in their neighborhood. what a wonder. it's what made us great. what a country. we can have it again. that's "hardball" for now. right now it's time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" tonight from new york. these stories are hitting "my hot buttons" and on the table at this hour. wannabe house speaker john boehner. the wizard behind the pledge to america says the american people aren't ready for solutions. how about that? i'm ready to give him a few words on my mind coming up in a moment. >>> governor chris christie, he's the biggest threat to our nation's schooschools. when he's not yelling at people at town hall meetings and trimming the fat at expense of our teachers, i'm doing my part for nbc's education notion. >>> the false prophet glenn beck is freaking out about dangerous killers coming from the left. his rhetoric is what's dangerous and it needs to stop. >>> this is the story that has me fired up tonight. john boehner has been out in the sun just probably a little bit too long, hasn't he? the tan man is flustered and back pedalling on his
with the newest winner. christine o'donnell. she staged a disdcisive upset in the u.s. senate race in delaware. state party leaders said this woman couldn't get elected dogcatcher and karl rove dismissed her as nutty. the national republican party is promising campaign money and even the vice president has a warning to democrats. >> i wouldn't sell short these candidates. i think that in my state, this new republican candidate is going to have an awful lot of money. i think you're going to see it pouring in and the third party operations, we'll take it very, very seriously. big mistake not to take it seriously. >> nbc news capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell is in washington for us. kelly, good morning. this is really fascinating and a new poll out today showing americans, basically, don't know who the tea party is. about the same number have favorable and unfavorable views but an awful lot of people are undecided and you sort of wonder if the real selling point they have is simply change. the same way it was two years ago. people aren't happy and this is a group that offers something d

, savannah. this was the worst helicopter crash in about four years for u.s. troops. nine troops dead. this happened in zabul province, which is in the south-southeastern section of afghanistan. an area where the taliban controls much of the territory and where coalition forces have been stepping up their attempts to push the taliban out. we are told this crash happened about 4:00 this morning, local time. the military says that there were no reports of enemy fire. that the crash is still under investigation. now, despite the fact that there were no reports of enemy fire, the taliban has called news organizations, including a call here at nbc news in kabul, to claim responsibility for the attack. they say they shot the helicopter down. the taliban often does that, claims responsibility for things that turn out to be accidents. and indeed, most of the helicopter crashes here have turned out to be accidents. maintenance problems, the incredible amount of dust in the air. this is the deadliest year for coalition forces. after today's crash, 525 coalition forces have died this year. 351 o
. but they do extend, big waves for many miles. the eye of the storm is disappearing on us. we could be undergoing an eyewall replacement cycle and that may not have time to fully wind back up. now the waves are probably the biggest story with this storm. the beach erosion is going to be incredible. we have 14-foot waves off of hatteras, 13-foot waves off of wilmington. the wave action is going to be incredible going all the way up the east coast to cape cod during the day tomorrow. hurricane warnings cape cod, hurricane warnings from virginia beach southward to just outside of jacksonville, north carolina near camp lejeune. as far as our commuter models go, everything is taking it offshore at this point. the only close call is out there at nantucket, martha's vineyard, chatam. it should be a category 3 and then a category 2 by the time it's south of new england, weakening to a category 1 as it impacts either down east maine, they're probably going to get hit good saturday morning. the tropical storm force winds, the worst where stephanie is located, and then as everyone drives to wo

to us. i am going to ask a question to you. we were one of the allies of the united states or the west. would we be treated the same way by the agency? >> the iaea -- >> translator: the iaea, yes. >> the iaea treats -- >> translator: please, please, let me finish. the iaea visit or inspect nuclear facilities or provide any report from those in france or the united states. do they have any access to those facilities? they have no access to those facilities in these countries. >> according to the united nations -- the iaea has, in fact, found grounds for a special procedures in the case of iran, and there are years of sanctions that attest to the fact that iran has not, in the eyes of the world, agreed. in the eyes of russia and china, the strongest allies on the security council. will you let the inspectors in? or if you don't, is there a risk of further hostility? >> translator: we are going to do everything within the framework of the law. we have already allowed them to inspect our facilities, and the iaea has visited our facilities a few times. they should value our opposition. if t
associated with this situation. and as you mentioned, here's how it all started. the fbi is telling us that earlier today this bank teller was kidnapped from his home near kendall by three robbers who strapped a suspected bomb to his chest and brought him here to this bank of america where he works and got money from him. once they got what they needed, they got what they wanted, they took off in a stolen red ford mustang. police are now actively searching for them as we speak. as for the teller, incredibly, tamron, he's okay at this hour. the device was taken off of him. he was led out of the bank at about 11:30 today. at this point police are not releasing his identity, and they are still questioning him because they're not quite ready to say whether he was innocent in all of this or whether he may have been involved in some way. the suspected bomb was left inside the bank, and authorities have deemed it safe. thankfully, nobody was hurt here today, and no other employees here were held hostage. three robbers who strapped a bomb to this bank teller's chest and stole money from this b
, and we pushed and we shoved and we were sweating, and these guys were standing, watching us and sipping on a slurpee. and they were pointing at us, saying, how come you're not pushing hard enough? >> nbc news white house correspondent savannah guthrie joins me live from the white house. savannah, we've heard the line before essentially, the gop is the party of no, they're the ones that got us into this mess. but clearly if you look at this poll, voters aren't buying it. what is the white house strategy? >> reporter: well, it's really interesting, because they've framed this whole argument as this is an election about a choice, the choice between poll sills sys of the past, which polls show continue to be very unpopular, or president's policies. but the problem for the white house and our poll really put the fine point on it, i think it's something like 58% of people in our poll say they believe republicans would have new ideas and wouldn't go back to the bush policies, so what's interesting is, this is the very argument that the president has been making for several months now, since ea
, luke. keep us posted and let us know. >> will do. >> when we get a final tally on the vote. i want to bring in rachel maddox. as you know, a couple of the waivering republicans said you've got to give us a little more room for amendments here. harry reid said no. this is the result. >> well, there's a couple of things. first of all, it's a historic decision to filibuster the defense reauthorization bill. this is something that has passed 48 times in 48 years. it just passes. this is one of the things that just passes. and that's why actually you've seen over the years lots of amendments, lots of things passed that are attached to this. originally when don't ask, don't tell was instituted, it was passed as an amendment to this bill. in 2007, we saw republican senator orrin hatch attach the dream act to this bill. some of john mccain's campaign finance provisions have been attached to this bill. so republican objections that they are very upset about democratic amendments to this are a little strange, given how many amendments republicans have attached to it. also harry reid's office
news deputy political director mark murray who joins us live from washington. let's break down what these results mean beginning in delaware. it was a huge tea party win, obviously. the question is, obviously, what will happen in the midterm? >> you know, richard, we just don't know right now. certainly the tea party has given republicans a jolt of enthusiasm and energy even in delaware. honestly, that's the republican party's biggest advantage heading into the midterm electrics. they're the ones who have the enthusiasm and the democrats don't. on the other hand, the tea party has given democrats an advantage in contests like delaware and kentucky and nevada where it's their candidates, the democratic candidates probably wouldn't have a chance to win or even be the favorites without the tea party candidates there. in delaware, for example, chris kuntz goes in as the fro front-runner in this contest. castle would have been the front-runner had he won. >> hey, mark, let's go to new york where we saw paladino come away with the winner there. >> that was just a shock. rick lazio has bee
strategy. thank you very much for joining us. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> president obama is quoted as saying, this is a direct quote from the book. this needs to be a plan about how we're going to hand off and get out of afghanistan. then he repeatedly, apparently, pushed his top military advisors for an exit plan and they didn't give it it him. does this in a way summarize the dilemma overall. the in fighting in afghanistan? >> it does. people seem apparently shock that there's infighting in the white house. and i would be disappointed if there wasn't. this is a badly flawed strategy. it has a number of holes in it. not least of which is it's not properly resourced. if you were really serious about standing up a functioning nation state in afghanistan, which is our professed goal, you can't do it with even 100,000 troops. you need far more troops and to be there for a very, very long time. >> that's exactly what general petraeus said and i'll ask our graphic folks to skip ahead to the quote from general petraeus from this book. he apparently said to the president, "you have to rec
following this story and he joins us now from decatur, georgia. ron, good morning. >> hey, thomas. good day to you. eddie long is one of the most popular ministers in this country he built a religious empire in the atlanta area and some say these are simple attempts to bring all of that down. >> somebody needs to celebrate that moment. somebody needs to bless god for that. >> reporter: he's hosted presidents like here at the funeral of coretta scott king. >> we thank the king family and we're in much prayer for you. >> reporter: he preaches to tens of thousands at his mega church outside atlanta. he counseled president clinton during the lewinsky scandal and an outspoken opponent of homosexuality. but today eddie long, who calls himself bishop, stands alone in the hot spotlight, sued in civil court by three former male members of his church for sexual coercion. no criminal charges have been filed. they say long introduced him to his world of luxury, private jets, rolls royces and even putting them on the church payroll while pressuring them into having sex. >> the bishop was grooming young

[ female announcer ] new aveeno nourish plus shine. >>> developing now at the top of the hour here on msnbc sunday, where it's 10:00 a.m. on the east coast, 7:00 a.m. out west, we're taking a look at a podium at which the pastor eddie long, the embattled pastor of a megachurch there in atlanta, is expected to stand there shortly coming up. he's expected to be accompanied by his wife, his attorney, as well as attorneys for the ministry. and he will be talking about allegations of sexual abuse and coercion of four teenage young men into acts apparently, he's reported to have given them lavish jewelry, even cars, vacations, these all allegations by these four. he will address these allegations coming up shortly. but earlier he did hold the first of two morning church services at that megachurch which about 10,000 people attended. let's listen to part of what he said to the congregation. >> i have never in my life portrayed myself as a perfect m man. but i am not th
. they've released photos, letting us know it went two hours, three hours. the president was taken a deliberative approach to a policy announceind decembd in d but there was a lot of disagreement. bob woodward chronicles it all in this book. he's done it again, a great deal of controversy there. the president, very concerned that he felt as though -- frustration boiling over, according to the book, that the military was boxing him in. general mcchrystal, he asked for 40,000 more troops in afghanistan. the president undertook that review, wanted a painstaking look at exactly how those troops were going to be used. they ended up with 30,000. he had an exit strategy. that's something that officials at the pentagon were very much against, according to the book, as well. but then the president telling lindsey graham, of all people, the republican from south carolina, according to the book, i can't lose the whole democratic party. in the context of needing that exit strategy. so there is no shortage, you talked about the holbrooke and biden going at each other. mike mullin against his de
are not anti-wall zreet or business. >> what has made us successful over the long term is we have the most dynamic free market economy in the world. government can't create the majority of jobs. in fact, we want to get out of the way of folks who have a great idea and want to run with it. >> john harwood moderated the town hall, which will reair right here on msnbc. a lot of ground was covered in an hour's worth of time. explain to us the main points the president was trying to drive home. >> well, i think it's the balancing act, thomas, that you identified a few moments ago. he's got to reassure business, which has a lot of cash on their balance sheets that's not being invested that could be a key to growth that they should have confidence in him. they should not see him has somebody attacking him. he has to convince ordinary people he's not too pro business. we had a poll that said most people think he's helping investment banks and large wall street institutions rather than him. it's not easy for him. he kept to his stance on tax cuts. we have a debate on whether the bush tax cuts shoul
's terry sanders following the story joining us live from ft. lauderdale, florida. the state with the highest second foreclosure rate since the month of august. what is the situation like? >> i came here as a perfect example. the home over shoulder, these are about $700,000. this one here is in foreclosure. now it's on a short sale. $380,000. this neighborhood was built with, they thought 70 homes. eight are in foreclosure. others in stages of foreclosure. look at the statistics here. it tells you the story of what's going on in the united states. one of every 81 homes in the united states are now in some stage of foreclosure. take a look at the states. nevada, one in 81 in foreclosure. florida, 1 in 155 in foreclosure. arizona, 1 in 165 in foreclosure. when you look at which states are responsible for most of the foreclosures in the country, california, has the greatst percentage. then florida, michigan, illinois and arizona. where i am, i'm in south florida, the statistics are worse, 1 in 111 homes down here in south florida is in some stage of foreclosure. it used to be sh
with washington. let us not forget that the tea party stands for taxed enough already. i think people are very upset with the size of government and they're upset with the spending going on and upset with the direction that the country is heading in. >> the republicans didn't recognize that. it didn't take, you know a political genius to figure out that people were mad as hell and weren't going to take it any more. >> yes, ychris, i do. the republican establishment in washington, yes, i do believe they were taken off stream and i think a lot of the leaders here very comfortable in washington and don't get back to their districts as much and don't travel around the country as much. i've heard, i've seen it and it's not a shock to me. it's a shock to a lot of the people in the building behind me. >> do you feel like you were delivered this huge gift? >> i am not going to count any chickens before they're hatched because i learned a dramatic lesson during the presidential primary in 2008 the voters will have their say and all the predictions can kind of get thrown out the window. ron is doing a v
to feel comfortable with. so they want to point out these contrasts and say democrats have taken us in the last two years is where we want to continue to go. we know there is a ways to go in produ reducing unemployment rates, but they think it will take the company backwards in a reverse direction. >> the president is attending a campaign party for sestak today. how does the white house pick the races in which the president is going to get involved as opposed to the ones where he's not going to show up for those candidates? >> well, certainly there is a lot of things that they're considering when they decide where to send the president. they want to send him to places where they believe he'll be effective, and certainly you have some races in some areas where the candidate doesn't really want to be tied too closely to the president because of the region they're in and what the voters there want to see. but in a place like here, philadelphia, you have a race with sestak and pat toomey and it's a pretty tight race. you have a lot of democrats across the state of pennsylvania, so they'
the political landscape dramatically six weeks before the midterms. mark murray joins us live from the site of the event. a lot of red meat for the faith there. including pleas to keep abortion and same-sex marriage as part of the gop platform. i understand why it's in their speeches. but is it really what they think will get conservatives elected. or is it more of a reallilying call? getting people fired up? >> it's important to point out this is sponsored by the family research counsel, always the social issue in opposition to abortion, opposition to gay marriage, with more opposition in the public sphere. it's no surprise social issues are front and center. the dominant political issue now in america is the economy with the unemployment rate at 10%. but this conference is really trying to hammer home that social issues and getting the social voters out to vote is important for republicans this fall. right before christine o'donnell speaks in a few minutes, i was just hearing a panel talk about their opposition to the repeal of don't ask, don't tell in the military. so they really are try
about iran. she joins us in her very first interview before addressing the general assembly and meeting all the other delegates. susan rice, thank you so much. iran again challenging the u.n. watchdog saying it is operating illegally, has no right to crack down. he's also saying the u.n. sanctions are having no effect, the effect of an interview -- in one interview he says it was a spoiled kleenex. what is your best information on how to deal with iran and whether these sanctions are having any effect? because certainly in his public statements skand iran's behavio it doesn't seem to have stepped back. >> you wouldn't expect the leader of iran to come ask say the sanctions are killing me. but with all the evidence we've seen, these have proven to be the toughest set of sanctions. u.n. community has ever imposed on iran and they're having difficulty as well as having iran move ships to acquire access to banking. they came in three categories. first, that that we passed at the united nations securities council. then the european union came behind, as did japan and south korea, others, can
, in effect, what is this part of our bureaucracy not telling us? i am untroubled by the kinds of cross-fire that i'm reading in this book. >> untroubled and not surprised? >> not surprised in the least. but, look, the thing that remains fascinating is how does bob woodward do this? i mean, he gets in there. he gave us the first book on this war "bush at war" and he got all of this material about the bush administration approaching the afghan war and there was very little disagreement in that. he also gave us the next book about the bush administration approach to the iraq war. >> right. >> you don't find this kind of disagreement in that as they were marching towards something they could not do in iraq. >> i want to read -- >> the plan didn't work. >> i want to read something from this book. it says the president was frustrated with his commanders asking for more troops. i can't let this be a war without end. i can't lose the whole democratic party. >> yeah. the way i read that is the congress has control of our war-making powers through the purse if they want to exercise it. if i lose
,000 bail. we don't know if money was paid, who paid it. we think one of the gulf nations, oman. the u.s. government says it did not. and if it was paid if it was 500,000 or less. >> absolutely. we do have information from the swiss embassy who represents u.s. interests here that the om omani people were instrumental in securing her release. all indications are they did help with the bail. >> it's an amazing drama, and our focus does remain on josh and shane and the fact they are still in prison and, in fact, the prosecutor said today that they will have to stay in july for two more months. this is the first time we had an end date. it doesn't seem they will be released immediately. >> it's not such an ominous sign, because it's the first time they put a time frame on this, which could be a positive signal. >> thank you, ali arouzi, we'll have much more of your reporting on msnba and throughout the day and evening. now joining us is nicholas burns, former undersecretary of state who entered a lot of negotiations behind the scenes with the iranians over the years on issues as large as the
'donnell and dirni idining wit president. tomorrow night's dinner. congresswoman sheila jackson-lee sdwro joins us this hour and plus the exploding poverty rate. >>> good afternoon, i'm kelly o'donnell andrea mitchell is still on assignment. >>> the annual voter summits one of this year's biggest gathering and practically a required stop for republican presidential hopef hopefuls. most anticipated moment of the day is about to come up in two hours when the tea party's latest sensation christine o'donnell takes center stage. >>> and nbc news capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell joins me now. kelly, all right, there are a lot of different things going on at this value voters summit, but i guess the main thing is, bashing president obama? >> reporter: that certainly is a big part of it, nora. an eclipse here. two o'donnells talking about a third o'donnell, all unrelated. been a strange few days. >> yeah. >> reporter: here you have a newcomer from, really, the movement. the tea party movement. never held office before but she'll hold the attention at this value voters' summit. and the presidenti
caught in this situation, that the immediate threat, this is the way it appears to us based on the facts we have, that the immediate threat to the people who work inside johns hopkins nelson building, that threat is now not a problem. so clint, we're keeping our eye on the situation. we'll keep our viewers up to date if we get more information that makes it seem like it's an ongoing problem there. thank you for your help, as well. >> okay, contessa. >>> the fight in congress over your money is now reaching fevered pitch. democrats and republicans have put up their dukes over middle-class tax cuts. and both sides are using that as ammunition for election day. the president called on congress once again to extend a tax cut for the middle class. but republicans want to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone. including the super wealthy. >> that this is not the time to increase taxes on anyone. >> vice president biden says the white house won't back down on this fight, either. biden says the tax money won't matter to people making millions of dollars. but for the middle-class, it could mean t
. he didn't use a word bullying but it was a message about that conduct. saying when your friends are doing well, don't be jealous of them, be proud of them. watch what they're doing and maybe you can learn something, too. so it's those kinds of sentiments we heard from the president today. should mention the president has been pushing hard on education reforms. his race to the top initiative, a competition for schools for federal funding that makes certain reforms. there's an election here in washington, d.c. today that a lot of people will be watching closely. mayor adrian fenty in a tough re-election battle. a lot of observers in local politics thinks he may not prevail. he hired the chancellor of washington schools. somebody the president and education secretary appointed to as somebody who is good on the issues of reform. we'll see if mayor fenty and michelle reid keep their jobs after today. >> savannah guthrie live at the white house. thank you. >>> an update on american sarah shourd. she's out of the iranian prison and speaking now for the very first time. >> i want to rea
,000. and the surprising detail, the deficit is down. the treasury department reports the u.s. is on track to record a $1.3 trillion deficit for the first fiscal year of president obama's presidency. 8% lower. that is 8% lower despite the stimulus spending than the 2009 deficit which included the last months of the bush presidency and reflected economic policy signed into law by the end of 2008 by president bush. house republican leader john boehner wants to increase that deficit by $700 billion over ten years by extending those bush tax cuts on income over a quarter million. but with bob schieffer, he even admitted 99% of small businesses will see no benefit from the cut and that 3% of what he calls small businesses make half the money. >> in a joint committee on taxation, which is a nonpartisan body, says that only 3% of the small business people you keep talking about all the small business people that are going to get taxed, only 3% would be affected by that, or do you quarrel with that figure? is that a right figure or a wrong figure? >> well, it may be 3%, but it's half of small business income bec

or european cities. >> nbc kerry sanders has been following this story. he joins us now from gainesville, once again this morning. kerry, there has been so much pressure from so many sides, but absolutely no turn around from the minister or his congregation at this point. >> none. and point out it's a very small congregation, at most, 50. out here in this field which borders a cow pasture and there you see the church in the background, but terry jones, the pastor, says he is not backing down unless he gets a message from his god telling him not to do this. he's gone a little bit further now in talking with "usa today" telling a reporter from "usa today" that if he were to get direct contact from the white house, from the pentagon or the state department, then he might reconsider. he says he's burning the koran to send a message to the extremists within the muslim religion. he says that he's offended by certain aspects of what is in the koran. so, i asked him directly, what was it about the teachings of islam that offend him so much? here's a little bit of that exchange. >> i have only read par

association with tea party candidates and in part because she was such a surprise winner and tell us a little bit about what you think about her and what the buzz is there about her. >> well, i think there's another part to it and that is that she was attacked by republicans. the republican establishment and i think when you put all of that into the mix, that has raised her profile beyond anything that it would have been on its own. the fact that she upset a 40-year political veteran who was a liberal republican and that the establishment had backed him and then when she wins, they get mad and attack her. so, that makes the mix, given this tea party background of kind of anti-incumbent, it's a pretty powerful mix. >> and i'm also interested because the first thing you said is that she was attacked by the party establishment. we heard it from the state gop chairman, we heard it from karl rove who called her nutty and it does sort of point to what is seen as this great divide within the republican party and a lot of people questioning whether that's going to serve conservative views long term.
